    Phoronix: KDBUS Still Hasn't Been Pulled, Might Not Land For Linux 4.1

    Linus Torvalds still hasn't pulled the KDBUS code into the Linux 4.1 kernel and it's beginning to look like he won't honor this pull request for the current Linux development cycle...

    That is far from Linus' colourful language. It was rather level-headed coming from him actually.

        Usual Phoronix clickbait....

        If you actually did read the lkml and the several kdbus topics you could see that Linus is way less critical towards it than others like Andy and Eric who just don't even want kdbus to exist at all. Heck he even disagrees with them on several of the complaints they raised :

        http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...4.2/03578.html
        http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...4.2/03589.html
        http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...4.2/04786.html
        http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...4.2/04934.html

        So yeah sorry for the people who expected him to rage against systemd developers but he looks more on the pro side than against it to me.

          I think everybody would have been surprised if this patch had been pulled during this merge window. I think an initial pull request for a major new subsystem like this acts more as a means to force the issue so that it gets real in-depth review and hashes out all the possible corner cases. Nobody does much more than quickly skim over it until the 11th hour when the potential to directly impact them is immanent.

            All I see is a technical discussion about certain concerns that have been raised. Not sure where you see Linus taking side.

            Imho this discussion could have happened before someone sat down and implemented it. But the important point is that it happens at all.

                Thats what i find weird. How come this whole discussion didn't happen before they started implementing something that big.

                  Someone tell you that Linus is not a browser developer, but a kernel developer. If you want that browser go learn coding or pay someone to do it.
